I know nothing about Cornelius McCarthy - other than his birthdate - before his marriage in 1853. It would be interesting if your info is him; however, there aren't any records to search for verification. ( I really do wish Southwest County Cork would make their records more accesible to us all!)
Anything you may have to compare the two Corneliuses would be appreciated. My Cornelius was a farmer.
Thank you for your response to my query and the information you have shared.
